メタボ (metabolic syndrome)



“Japanese foods are considered to be healthy”, I think you have that image.
However, it is said that one out of five people are obese due to Western foods influence.

The word “Metabo” (short for metabolic syndrome) is newly created.
“Metabo” is a state of disease that will lead to heart disease or stroke and its main causes are obese, diabetes, high blood pressure or hyperlipidemia.

Gentlemen, if your waist size is over 90cm (35inch), trim excess fat!
Men’s underwear that makes you slim just wearing it is sold these days.
